10:00 pm
they didn't even notice it didn't seem like. why is that? we'll leave you the weekend to think about it. that's it for us, tune in every night at 8:00 to the show a sworn enemy of lying and smugness. have a great weekend. ♪ ♪ >> hello, america, mark levin, this is life, liberty and levin. i have a special guest. tucker carlson, good to see you. no, this, i've been in tv 23 years. this is the most spectacular studio. congratulations. number one show on sunday nights. >> thank you. >> you're killing it. >> sean: i have to persuade you to do this. >> i owe you and a few other people the fact i got into radio. you kept prodding me, prodding me. >> sean: annoying is more like
10:01 pm
it. >> we've known each other over 0 years. >> sean: best friends. >> you haven't changed at all. you haven't changed at all. you were doing a local show on wabc, and then you hit the big time, you substituted for rush, you went into syndication, you started with fox at the very beginning of fox. >> 1996. >> you've been there the entire time. now you're really the babe ruth of cable tv. you're the babe ruth of cable tv. >> sean: let's not jo state the case -- overstate the case. >> but you are. as the babe ruth of cable tv, you're attacked by the left. they attack you, call for boycotts, what is that like? >> sean: that's a great question. the most important thing to me, i don't care. not even a little bit, mark. one bit what the left thinks of
10:02 pm
me. i just care about what's right. like you, i have a love and a passion for this country. i do it by design, my way. you have your unique style, rush has his style, i like to be myself. and i saw 13 million more americans on food stamps, 8 million more in poverty, i saw the lowest labor participation rate since the '70s, worse the recovery since the '40s. 51% low home openership, doubling of the debt. i give those numbers out regularly on purpose. those are real people, real americans, real suffering. and the suffering, because of government failure. this is your wheelhouse. this is what you do. and you do the history of our great founders and framers and philosophers. at the end of the day, i look at it from a practical standpoint.
10:03 pm
what works. why does it work. >> why do you think you're attacked the way are you? >> sean: for a lot of these people it's about power. we had the most unbelievable week where pam bonn di is attacked, secretary nielsen is attacked, sara huckabee is attacked, conservatives are being thrown out of restaurants, they're being followed, you have high profile democrats suggesting that we get confronted in gas stations and restaurants, wherever you go, like a mob mentality is taking over. the real reason for it, in 500 dales the economy has flipped dramatically, every economic indicator is off the charts, nobody thought donald trump would win, nobody thought he'd get the primary, nobody thought he'd beat hillary. and now, the democrats only have one playbook, republicans are
10:04 pm
racist, home on phonetic, islamophobic, it's one big lie. let me look at one economic statistic. 14 states in the united states right now, record unemployment. african-americans, record low unemployment. hispanic americans, record low unemployment. women in the workforce, record low unemployment. the success of donald trump is a clear and present danger to the left in america. it is a threat to them. and so, like when he first got into office, which he never he'd win, they're imploding. now that he's skful and now that the mueller witch hunt, which you have an very articulate about, is imploding, now that the economy is successful, nobody expected little rocketman to be returning hostages, to be dismantling nuclear test sites, to be willing to talk about the
10:05 pm
denuclearization of the korean peninsula. nobody thought donald trump would get that when he talked about fire and fury and donald trump talking about little rocketman, he was saying my button is bigger than yours and mine works. it shows peace through strength works. it shows the president's economic philosophy works. how long have we, as conservatives, known that government bureaucracy is killing business? it is destroying states like ohio, michigan, wisconsin, and pennsylvania all around the country. we now have four million new jobs created in just over 500 days. why am i -- >> you think you are attacked because you give voice to conservativism? >> sean: yes. >> you're successful in giving voice? >> sean: all of the above. >> are you a defender of the president and his policies? >> sean: these policies are working. to answer your question, a round about answer, mark, directly, is
10:06 pm
that the most of my career, i go with my heart, my gut, but i'm also very connected to those people that are out of work. i bought a painting by john mcgnaw ton. and he's a patriotic and religious painter out of salt lake city. it's a forgotten man. and the forgotten man painting is a young man on a bench, all of the presidents and obama, has his foot on the constitution which you revere. the reason that this election was about them, you know my background -- >> that's what i want to get to, do you think you identify with those folks and the president's policies, how you grew up? how you came up and your parents, explain it. >> sean: my grandparents came here, on average $10 in their pocket from ireland at the turn of the last century. and they had no hopes, no
10:07 pm
dreams, except to make a better life for their children. and hence my parents did better. and i literally believe i stand on the shoulders of those four grandparents, all four came from ireland. and my parents, they never really had any money. >> modest middle class parents. >> sean: i was delivering papers at 8, washing dishes at 12, by hand, not a machine, in a restaurant every friday, saturday, sunday. i became a chef, a bus boy, a wapter, par tender, then i got into contracting. painting, hanging wallpaper, laying tile, framing houses. fell off the roof. >> come to my house. >> sean: you need work done? [laughing] yes, the answer to your question is, i'm a dishwasher who works hard and harder than i've ever worked. and i believe in this country. and i believe that i've been blessed more than i deserve. and i absolutely, positively, i
10:08 pm
abhor, this country can be, and is, the shining city on the hill as reagan talked about. and it is frankly my obligation, look, now i have made money, lived with no money and now i have money. it's better to have money and opportunity and a growing thriving economy. it's also better to have peace in the world. we don't need to be at war with everybody. >> what did your parents do? sven high my mom was a prison guard, my dad worked in family probation. it was a big deal. nobody, i've never told this story, i was appointed to the new york police academy when i was 19. >> really. >> sean: 19 or 20. last night, it was psychological, passed the physical, got a 99 on the written, was appointed to the academy and two days before, i said i don't know. i have no idea why i made that decision.
10:09 pm
it was a big deal in my family, to be a civil servant. the two relatives i had that made to it the fbi, they were like a deity. that's why it hurts for me to be looking at corruption in the fbi, not to get too offtrack here. look, america is supposed to be, we all want the same thing, in a way. everybody wants a nice house in a safe neighborhood, a decent car to drive, they want to go out to dinner once a month or every two weeks, they want to take their kids when they're 5 or 6 to disney. they're willing to work hard for that. when government through its burdenensome regulation and high taxes, you know, think of what the democrats want to run on this mid-term election, this mid-term election is the single biggest most important mid-term in the country's history.
10:10 pm
because they want to impeach this man. now, they're telling people like maxine waters, shh, don't tell anybody, we dot it, we got it. they don't have a reason to impeach him no, high crimes or misdemeanors. >> i agree. >> sean: what else do they want to do? they want open borders, obamacare, and the biggest tax cut in our history, $2,000, around, on average per family. nancy pelosi, the millionaire. they want to resend those tax cuts. $2,000 in the pockets of families, is a massive difference in their everyday lives. >> how do you explain the so-called never trumpers. the president is enormously effective in foreign policy. a lot of them come out of the bush administration, the neoconservatives. you look at iran, the president
10:11 pm
did the right thing. when you look at israel, recognizing jerusalem as the capital and moving the embassy from tell aveef to jerusalem, that was the law that was bypassed by every president kept this president. when you look at north korea, they may quibble over the things he said, but the fact is, he's done things in terms of first of all putting the military out there, and driving the dictator to the table. when you look at reagan, i worked for reagan. i supported him in the general election. i see lot of similarities. not talking about -- the charisma, a principal to both of them. and i'm concerned there are some people who claim to be conservatives. who don't recognize it. either because they have had a personal tiff with him or the very thin skinned about approaches and so far. >> sean: one other thing they
10:12 pm
don't want to admit they've been wrong. >> you've been in a fight with these people. >> sean: it's not even a fight. the american people are winning now. look, i'm going to make a present kicks. -- a prediction. donald trump is a transformational president. and i don't believe he's a nationalist. and i don't believe he's a pop uist. i have always -- populist. i have always maintained my entire career, i am a reagan conservative. which you were the chief of staff for ed meese, one of the greatest attorney generals we had. you know reagan's poll i ss. i can cite the economic statistics, doubled revenues to the government. >> he was hated, too, attacked. >> sean: wait a minute, he was called an amiable duns by republicans. and voodoo economics was a bush term. >> took him three times to get the nomination.
10:13 pm
he was attacked all of the time. the media hated him, hated him. but they hate trump more. >> sean: more. >> and my view of that, see if you agree. they thought hillary was going to win, they banked on hillary, they wanted the third term of obama, this man's win surprises everyone, probably surprises himself. american people rose up and said enough is enough we want to try this man. and this is not just an attack from my perspective on trump. this is an attack on the american people. you can hear it more and more. scarbrough talking about the trump voters as racist. now, the trump voters are racist, hillary calling them deplorable. they're attacking tense of millions of americans. >> sean: i go on walmart and i can smell the trump people, strzok said. there's a contempt. and the left has always had this for conservatives. but this's a contempt for people. now, okay, i'm that dishwasher, i'm that bus boy, i'm that
10:14 pm
contractor, i identify with the people that make the country great. here's why i think trump is a transformational figure. this office will never be viewed again the same way. i think there were three in our lifetime, three, three movements, really profound moments of conservativism. >> i don't want to cut you short this, i want to hear it. >> sean: you need to take a break? >> you know the format. i want to hear this, at length. >> sean: you got it. >> check us out on levin tv, almost every week night,, sign up or 844-levin-tv. we'd love to have you. 844-levi. we'd love to have you. 844-levi. we'll be right back. honey, this gig-speed internet is ridiculously fast.
10:15 pm
10:16 pm
10:17 pm
i know, right. we are seriously keeping up with the joneses.
10:18 pm
i know, right. we are seriously keeping with the anderson's. we are finally keeping up with the ford's. keeping up with the garcia's. keeping up with the harvey's. keeping up with the wahh-the-wahh the romeros. carters. patels. the allens. wah... wolanske's. right, them. no one is going to have internet like this. no one is going to have internet like this. gig to more homes than anyone. not just the joneses'. over here. xfinity. the largest gig-speed network. . mark: sean hannity, you were talking about > mark: you were talking about transformational presidents. go aid head. >> sean: let's go back to the reagan compare son. looking at trump, besides trade and i know where you stand on trade, let's put that aside. we've discussed pry matly, i still think everything is a -- private privately, everything is a negotiation. we'll never get. there i know this man pretty well. donald trump, if you go back to reagan, reagan was hated by the
10:19 pm
establishment as we were discussing. and all of a sudden, we get 20 million new jobs, lower period of peace time economic growth, mr. gorbachev tear down this wall, the evil empire, like the little rocketman fire and if you are fury. now even democrats can't help but acknowledge how great the reagan years were. the same thing will happen to donald trump. the office of the presidency is never going to be viewed the same way again. he has broken every rule of establishment politics. and the left hasn't figured out the american people have figured out, like for example, the media will act all outranled donald trump tweeted this. you watch these stupid cable people that live in a bubble and they talk to each other only, not any realaudioens, that's outrageous.
10:20 pm
then the next one will say that's really, really outrageous. no, that's outrageous, and disgusting. this is their own world. meanwhile, the american people are saying four million new jobs, the economy has never been better, consumer confidence has never been higher, record unemployment. here's my argument. we're going to look back in our lifetime, and we are going to realize that he has systematically changed, he's taken the bar higher in the sense that people want to get things done. the american people are practical common sense people. if it works, they don't want these guys playing games. i'll give you an example. i hate republicans in this sense. republicans, never, all of the years they talk about healthcare, we had a healthcare debate, never talked about health savings accounts, healthcare cooperatives, you and i have read musgrave, goodman,
10:21 pm
patient power, the kato foundation, health savings accounts. who talked about health savings accounts but for rand paul and others? healthcare cooperatives. those innovative so-called intellectual ideas of conservatives, weren't even discussed. they tried to ram through an establishment bill and couldn't keep a simple promise they all made for 7 1/2 years. donald trump comes in, okay, i'll do it all. they couldn't get the job done. > mark: what else has donald trump done? >> sean: cut taxes. > mark: he has exposed the media. and this is why they hate him. i am convinced the media have played this game with the american people for decades, their objective and/or by part san , only reporting the news. he's shown them to be a pseudo profession. it's not a profession at all. what he has shown them also to be is group think, one mind.
10:22 pm
there's different characters. different levels of intelligence, some of them quasi-intelligence. he drives them nuts because he called them out. then they accuse him of attacking the press, freedom. he's not attacking press freedom, he's pointing out how they're undermining press freedom. >> sean: in 2007 and 2008 i said journalism in america is dead. >>. > mark: i remember this. >> sean: i didn't know how right i was. i love this part. what they haven't figured out at cnn, cnn, they have been so branded, they will forever be known as fake news cnn. same with the broadcast networks. one of the funniest things the president does, if you have a sense of humor and you understand donald trump and the american people seem to understand them and they accept that he's not your cookie cutter politician, that is politically
10:23 pm
correct, that will take a chance. during the rallies, see the people in the back fake news, fake news of the crowd turns around on their own, not led by trump, cnn sucks. or fake news. and they shout at them. i would be thinking if i was running the network, and every state, every group of people, was saying hannity sucks, i think i might take it personally at some point and say what am i doing wrong. > mark: but there's a reason why the democrat party agenda and the media are so in sync. >> sean: sure. > mark: when is the last time the "washington post" and the "new york times" led with a front page headline story supportive of a trump policy? >> sean: is that a joke? > mark: it's like i told you on your show, the text from the fbi, can you point out one that's pro trump? no. can you point out one that's anti-hillary? no.
10:24 pm
one pro trump senior fbi official? >> sean: the best line you ever said on my show, you pointed out, rightly so, sadly, that, again, not rank and file fbi, i'm very careful to make -- > mark: we're the ones that defend the rank and file and we're trying to clean up the top mess. son i'll taje it a step further. the heros at the end of this story are going to be rank and file, the special agents, dieing to tell their story about how corrupt their top bosses were. > mark: i'm waiting for my best line on tv. >> sean: i'm going to te tell you. best line ever, was sadly, it's a sad line, but true, and captures it all. that literally what they have done to try and subvert an election is far worse than anything russia could have imagined.
10:25 pm
in is why nobody seems to understand how profound this is. and the other part of this, the i.d. report is only the beginning. this is what happened. hillary committed felonies. hill any be on stlukted justice. it was -- obstructed justice. it was covered up by the top ranking fbi officials comey, page, strzok, loretta lynn too much an extent, andrew mccabe and others. and they covered it up, they rigged an investigation, they wrote an exoneration before they interviewed her and 17 other people. that never happens. there have been other people that have gone to jail far less than what hillary clinton did. toe she could remain the candidate. we see written text how much they loved her. then they turned on trump. i think you have used the term, i used the term, russia used the term, it's accurate, which is a soft coat. this has never happened. this is the biggest single abuse
10:26 pm
of power, scandal, corruption, scandal, in american history. back to the media, they have missed the biggest story in their lives and while simultaneously pushing a phony russian narrative, their fixation is not helping the american people but destroying one man after they supported her. > mark: the media wants trump out. they go after his family, his staff, they go after his campaign. >> sean: they want him to fail. > mark: he exposed them. you were saying cnn will never be viewed the same, ever. the media will never be viewed the same. we will be right back. . ♪ (electronic dance music) . ♪ ♪ ♪
10:27 pm

10:30 pm
>> live from the news head car percent. a trade war erupted from the u.s. and china expected to escalate. unsettled financial markets and also slow the global economy. the trump administration imposed tariffs on bill lons of dollars worth of chinese imports early friday and china retaliated. consumers could pay more for chinese made products and american traders could lose their competitive edge in china. president trump saying this week that he's narrowed down the list of contenders to fill the vacancy for the supreme court seat held by retiring justice anthony kennedy. mr. trump's top contenders
10:31 pm
reportedly amy coney barrett, brett kavanaugh, and raymond kethledge. the president is scheduled toy announce his pick on monday. now back to "life, liberty, and levin." >> mark: you know, believe it or not, people want to know how we met, how we became best friends that, sort of thing. how did we meet, i don't remember. >> sean: i don't know, great question. we think we're so smart. we aren't that smarty guess. >> mark: i don't remember. a long time ago. >> sean: this is interesting. this is role reversal. i interview you. look, what -- >> mark: you like interviewing me? >> sean: i do. >> martha: >> mark: why? >> sean: i take out my phone and i'll have one question, we have timed your answers, they're six-minute answers. but they're chockfull -- i like to let you do your thing. >> mark: this is when i'm on,
10:32 pm
like, hannity during the week. >> sean: i don't like to do interviews like this. not because i don't like to do them, i feel four hours a day is nufts of me. three hours on radio, an hour on tv, how much do people want of me. i always interview you, although you have interviewed me on your radio show before. interviewing you is what i find, i have gotten to be a better host, i listen more. i get my monologue out, i work on that from 8:00 in the morning until 9:00 night. >> mark: you write your own monologue? >> sean: absolutely. >> mark: you read it off the board? sometimes i can tell you're just doing it off your mind. >> sean: if i have 13 minutes written it's really a 20 minute monologue. the radio comes out. and i have the best prompter. i have signals. i'll give you my signals. reading the prompter and i'll go like that, that's the signal don't move.
10:33 pm
i'll look away -- >> mark: keep it where it is, i have other things to say. >> sean: right. we add 5 to 7 minutes to the monologue and i use them all. there's so much to talk about. i think what has made me a better host. i have read enough research on me over the years, and when you do something wrong, your audience, they're smarter than you are, they're watching. if i interrupt somebody they get frustrated, stop interest ruling. and i find if i get it out in the beginning and try to make the best case every day. we start with an empty van kas every day is a new day. the challenge, you have to assume there's new people watching. you have to set the foundation. but also keep bringing in the new information. i try and do it as creative as i can. it's a little bit of a challenge every day. but in all honesty -- >> mark: i come on and speak for six minutes. >> sean: i let you go. it works.
10:34 pm
>> mark: have you ever interrupted me? >> sean: i try not. to i try not to interrupt like i used to. only reconstraints we have is the constraints of time. but i honestly feel this is history unfolding before our eyes. i never finished the thought earlier. it was the reagan revolution, it tranls formed the country -- transformed the country. i was the emcee the night newt gingrich became speaker of the house. i was local radio host. we're now in the third wave of this. and it's donald trump the conservative, not all this nationalist, populism. he's governing as a conservative. >> mark: the reagan revolution, tea party, trump resolution? >> sean: reagan, newt contract, tea party, trump. trump, like reagan at some
10:35 pm
point, people are going to realize how transformation it is. we can't predict the future. you never know if there's a major economic downturn, maybe out of all of our control. you don't know about peace and prosperity. i do know that this president looks at, you know, he says he wants to meet putin and he's developed a good relationship with the president of china. i think we already see dividends, vis-a-vis north korea. if we can deknew kwlee arize -- denuclearize the north korean peninsula, thatted good for our grand kids. >> mark: reagan talked about getting rid of the nukes. he's friendly with the dictator of china but tough on china, he doesn't allow it to get in the way of policy. let's get back to you. when did you start in radio? >> sean: wow. it's either '86, ' -- it's '87, 1987. i didn't last very long, i
10:36 pm
wasn't very good at it i knew i wanted to be on the radio. howard stern tells a great story, you watch his movie, "private parts" may sound bizarre. >> mark: i never watched it. >> sean: i identify with everything this he did. he just, once said that the light went on the first time i was on radio. and i have no idea where this comes from. none. it just came out. and i knew i loved it from the first time i did it. i have the tapes. they're horrific, it's many baring. >> mark: you can burn them. >> sean: i'm going. to my son, who's 19, heard it once and he literally said, oh, dad, put his hands over his face and said that's embarrassing. but i've been very fortunate in my career in the sense that i loved it. i ate it up. and then, i never had a vision that i could do it after growing
10:37 pm
up lis nipping to radio. then -- listening to radio. then i did it and wanted to do nothing else. finally got a job, traveled, similar to howard stern, i started traveling around the country. i was, five years in rhode island, five years in california, two years in alabama, two years in georgia. i always thought, and i do today, that i've done my last show. >> mark: when we return, what was your big break, what would you consider to be your big break? don't forget, check us out on levin tv, almost every week night,, join us, we'd love to have you. call us at 844-levin-tv. we'll be right back. 844-levin-. 844-levin-tv. 844-levin-. we'll be right back. (vo) we came here for the friends.
10:38 pm
and we got to know the friends of our friends. and we found others just like us. and just like that we felt a little less alone. but then something happened. we had to deal with spam, fake news, and data misuse. that's going to change. from now on, facebook will do more to keep you safe and protect your privacy. because when this place does what it was built for, then we all get a little closer.
10:39 pm
does it look like i'm done?yet? shouldn't you be at work? [ mockingly ] "shouldn't you be at work?" todd. hold on.

10:41 pm
10:42 pm
>> mark: welcome back. sean hannity radio, what was your big radio break? >> sean: it wasn't just one. well, you can't deny when you fill in for rush. look, he's the pioneer, he forged a path. we all owe him a debt of gratitude. >> mark: absolutely. >> sean: i'm very appreciative. i grew up listening to these radio guys. farber, barry grant, the money guy. then i listened to the pioneers of talk radio. the big break was dave stone and bill donovan, huntsville, alabama, first paid radio gig. i was doing it for free up until then. i packed up what was my contracting work van and drove across the country. that was break one. break two, was sluggo, eric, in atlanta, georgia.
10:43 pm
neem, who's now a friend of both of ours, since retired, left one station, which he referred to as his ex-wife, and moved to a bigger station. now i'm on that station, ironically, wusb. the big break, was fox news going on the air. then that led to wabc, roger aeles and phil boyce. i'm friends with every person that hired me. they all critique me to this day. if i'm doing something they don't like, sludgo is saying, shut up, let 'em talk. i'm getting p.d.s. but they care. i actually prefer the criticism rather than the compliment. that makes you better. >> mark: you're one of the few people who have been able to do radio and tv. actually, the only one i know. couple of decades now. no, no, no. you've done it for a couple of decades. >> sean: 23 years. >> mark: 23 years.
10:44 pm
how do you have the energy for this? >> sean: i don't know. i can flip the question. if i didn't do it every day i would be riding around in a car doing my own talk show, probably outloud. >> mark: talking to yourself on the corner with a raincoat? >> sean: probably. saying, okay, i'd be going john in atlanta. long time listener, first time caller. >> mark: did you call in to talk shows early on? >> sean: i would be on the ladder doing construction work and calling in. the ollie north hearings, i couldn't go to work. i sat there watching the hearings. brendan sullivan, i'm not a potted plant. there was an unbelievable. when ollie north, went like this, or when they thought they had him. because he bought lee on tardz for his young -- leotards for
10:45 pm
his young daughter, the dancer, fawn hall, he had to have been having an affair. the media was corrupt then. >> mark: you were calling media shows? >> sean: i got more reaction than the hosts. i want to talk about what that guy just said. i was passionate. it was my love, my passion. reagan, i studied him from day one. i got into studying on my own. >> mark: how old are you? >> sean: good question. 56. >> mark: you started in radio how old were you? >> sean: 27ish. >> mark: you started on fox in your 30s? >> sean: yes, early 30s, 23 years. >> mark: you think you can do this for another 10 or 20 years? >> sean: i don't think about it. people say what part do you think -- i just do my thing every day. here's my analogy. i don't like when people get too ee go advertise ty cal and i did this. people in our business, i have
10:46 pm
always believed, like, what the bible said, if you aren't against us you're for us. if n. that sense even people that hate both of us, if they're doing good things for the country i don't care what they say about me. i want the country to succeed. i view it as all spokes in a wheel. every spoke is necessary to make the wheel go round. and by the way, every american citizen voting, for example in 2018, they want to undo your -- undo the last election. they want to do -- they want a do-over. 2018 is a do-over. four things they want to do. they want to impeach the president, they want open borers can, they want to keep obama care and they want their crumbs back. we can't let this happen. mid terms usually aren't that important, really. and the first mid-term, in any presidency, historically, with a couple of exceptions, the power that -- the party that halls the

presidency is going to lose seats. we can't have that this time. if we do they will do those four things. they so hate this president, and the american people, the fbi agents tried to undermine trump in the soft coup. those people thought they knew better than the american people. it's arrogance, it's power, those are in your books. all of those philosophers you talk, about i've read everyone of your books, all of those framers and founders warned about tyranny in government. there's contempt right now for the american people. one last thing, this is a tipping point for the country, mark. we better get this right or we lose it. if they're successful in their effort to undermine donald trump, and push him out of office, we have lost the country. we'll never get it back. you know what you once said? >> mark: i love it, he quotes me.

10:53 pm
promise keeping of donald trump. if you want to get re-elected instead of calculating what is going to happen, what if i do this, what if i vote this way, keep your promises. >> mark: why do we need a freedom caucus within the republican party? >> sean: it should be the whole republican party. think of this, the reason they couldn't repeal and replace obamacare, they never had any intention of repealing and replacing obamacare. they're as bad as the democrats n the senate in 2015, you had, they voted to repeal obamacare. straight vote. seven of them when it mattered less than two years later, we didn't mean it. >> mark: the house was worse, they wouldn't vote to repeal it. >> sean: the house passed bills that the senate never took up. over 400 of those. here's what is missing. where's the principle of lower tacks.
10:54 pm
where's the principle of securing our borders. that will create millions of high paying career jobs. he is more at war with his party than the democratic party. the reality is in washington, i'm not a registered republican, i'm a conservative. identify always been a consistent reagan conservative. for the idiot never trumper people, they're not consistent. now their egos are so large, they don't want to admit they're wrong. >> mark: we will be right back. .
